All non fiction books are true stories. Non-fiction or nonfiction is one of the two main divisions in prose writing, the other form being fiction. Non-fiction is a story based on real facts and information . Non-fiction is a narrative, account, or other communicative work whose assertions and descriptions are believed by the author to be factual. These assertions and descriptions may or may not be accurate, and can give either a true or a false account of the subject in question; however, it is generally assumed that authors of such accounts believe them to be truthful at the time of their composition or, at least, pose them to their audience as historically or empirically true. Reporting the beliefs of others in a non-fiction format is not necessarily an endorsement of the ultimate veracity of those beliefs, it is simply saying it is true that people believe them (for such topics as mythology, religion). Non-fiction can also be written about fiction, giving information about these other works. Non-fiction need not necessarily be written text, since pictures and film can also purport to present a factual account of a subject. The numerous literary and creative devices used within fiction are generally thought inappropriate for use in non-fiction. They are still present particularly in older works but they are often muted so as not to overshadow the information within the work. Simplicity, clarity and directness are some of the most important considerations when producing non-fiction. Audience is important in any artistic or descriptive endeavour but it is perhaps most important in non-fiction. In fiction, the writer believes that readers will make an effort to follow and interpret an indirectly or abstractly presented progression of theme, whereas the production of non-fiction has more…

Second Place - Middle School - Non-Fiction/Essay
By Lindy Beardsley
Although many people have extremely irritating pet peeves, I do not. I have looked for
things that bug me and, besides my brother, there is nothing. I do not get irritated when people
crack their fingers, or when they drive carelessly. The only thing that I have trouble thinking
about applies to every human being with a soul. I do not like when a regular person with their
own problems makes fun, treats badly, says rude…

We planned a bon fire in our back yard, brought the barbeque down to the patio, set…

Foer fused all the necessary elements in a well-balanced manner to write an intriguing non-fiction book. To excel in writing a non-fiction book and fully persuade the audience, an Author must have the expertise in the area he is writing about, a conversation with a respectable topic that would form an argument, and proper structure through the book that will navigate…
science fiction. Many times I have seen a sci-fi movie filed under comedy or drama. That is one of the major things that has led to my love for science fiction, the simple fact that it can be so much more than just science fiction. I would like to present a definition of what science fiction is in this paper. My definition will not be exact, because so many people have a different idea of what counts as sci-fi and, not only that, but we may have found yet another venue for science fiction by the time…
